The best fried chicken around! Small place, no seats, cash only, and its perfect that way! The line moves fast, the chicken is right out of the fryer, and the skin is always crispy, not greasy! Dont miss a stop here! Fantastic!

LOVE Price's! Everything they cook is great. I love the chicken as well as the chicken livers. Others also like the gizzards. Always busy and may take several minutes in line, but worth the wait.

We were disappointed that no onions were available for burger;... More

Be sure to stop by your ATM before you go to Price's. That being said, the fried chicken is absolutely overwhelming. From the skin to the meat to sucking on the bone, there is never a dull moment when eating this chicken.

I have been enjoying their Fried Chicken for over 46 years. If you are in Charlotte you must try this place. Their dinners come with the chicken, cole slaw tater tots a roll and hush puppies. They have great sweet tea
